The United Nations has estimated that 3 million children in Nepal under the age of 5 are at risk of death or disease this winter of 2016. It is a humanitarian crisis that is getting little global attention at this time. Since 2013 Platt Park Church, in partnership with Etka Church in Nepal and Serve Life International has been learning from the church in Nepal and serving to support the development goals they have for their community. Multiple trips have been taken, conferences held, sewing business projects supported and an orphanage and youth program started. The people of Nepal have deeply impacted the lives of people at Platt Park Church and we truly feel we are receiving more than we are giving through this partnership. The faith, hope and love in which our Nepalese friends live despite extremely difficult circumstances gives us a renewed hope and challenge in our own lives of faith. If you want to grow with God and enlarge your heart, get involved in Nepal.
